Meet Lauriel, a resilient individual who has overcome numerous obstacles and has finally secured a job after three years of searching. Lauriel not only managed to find employment at Terry White Pharmacy in Taree, but she also managed a disability that has made this achievement most deserved. Now she is kicking long term goals.

At 18, Lauriel registered with TURSA and undertook various courses to build her skills and knowledge, including completing a certificate II in community pharmacy. Despite facing challenges due to her disability, she remained determined and worked hard to prepare herself for job interviews.

After TURSA organized work experience for her, Lauriel’s dedication and enthusiasm earned her a job offer at Terry White. In her role, she assists customers, ensures everything runs smoothly during rush hour, and, most importantly, provides an excellent customer experience.

Throughout this journey, Lauriel’s experience has taught her to be more confident in her ability, hold her head up high, and be assertive. Managing a disability has not hindered her from achieving her dreams but has empowered her to embrace her unique abilities and strengths.

Lauriel’s remarkable success story inspires all who face challenges and obstacles in their pursuit of employment. Her resilience, determination, and positive attitude have enabled her to achieve her goals and build a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry. Congratulations, Lauriel, on this fantastic achievement, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavours!
